Summary

Green buildings - buildings that use fewer resources to build and to sustain - are commonly thought to be too expensive to attract builders and buyers. But are they? This eye-opening book reports the results of a large-scale study based on extensive financial and technical analyses of more than 150 green buildings in the US and ten other countries. It provides detailed findings on the costs and financial benefits of building green. According to the study, green buildings cost roughly 2% more to build than conventional buildings - far less than previously assumed-and provide a wide range of financial, health and social benefits. In addition, green buildings reduce energy use by an average of 33%, resulting in significant cost savings.
